All Thankgas are mounted in a traditional brocade (the exact colours and textile pattern will vary from thangka to thangka) which is in proportion to the height of the painting it mounts (approximately 1.8 times the painting height).
Each painting takes anything from one month to six months to complete. For the sake of clarity, the brocade is not shown in the images of the paintings on sale.
When on display the veil is drawn up, as shown, by two sashes. Often, when the painting is not featuring in a ritual, the veil is dropped as a matter of respect. For transport and storage the thangka is rolled up with the veil and painting facing outwards.
